any tips to stop it bleeding?


Seriously...keep it higher then your arm and apply pressure around the area with something clean and sterile to soak up any blood. Might take 20-30mins if its that bad.

keep your hand raised and apply a tight dressing

lick it.

dip it in lemon juice

as above - keep the wound above your heart and apply tight badage/dressing - bleeding will stop but careful when you remove the dressing as it will scab over and stick to the dressing.


Super glue. Seriously. It's what superglue was invented for originally - used all the time in the Vietnam war.

Burn it

Do nothing - It will stop eventually - A man weighing 154 pounds (70 kilograms) would have about 5.5 quarts (5.2 liters) of blood. A woman weighing110pounds (50 kilograms) would have about 3.5 quarts (3.3 liters) of blood.

Superglue. Does the job.

of course you can - your blood pulses around your body, and your thumb has it's own pulse.. hence when taking your pulse don't use ya thumb...

Fill wound with salt

some really sadistic people on here ain't there


pee on it..
